This is a fabulous project! We want to buy a house in Snodland that our sixth formers can “use” to learn really essential life skills.
Indoor maintenance – everyday things like cleaning, with particular attention paid to bathrooms and kitchens
External maintenance – keeping the lawn and edges neat. Putting bins out for collection
Repairs – learning how to perform simple plumbing repairs – a new washer on a tap, unblock a u-bend. Learning basic repairs on an old window where the putty has become old and loose. Stopping the squeak on an annoying set of hinges
Gardening – grow some flowers and tend some vegetables
Decorating – learn to paint and wallpaper, tile and cove, stencil and sponge
House “admin” – keep an eye out for bills, know what to do when they arrive
Entertain – make coffee & cakes and tea & biscuits and invite friends in to share some good times together.
